Otto Addo, contractual coach of the Ghana Black Stars, claims his allotted role was somehow engulfed with negative eye balls. Coach Addo respectfully resigned from being the coach of the Black Stars, after Ghana’s exit from the 2022 World Cup.
In a media coverage at the team’s lodging in Doha, the Dortmund strategist asserted that his administrative role was rife with a ton of criticism, as some Ghanaians wished for his failure, which clearly occurred at the World Cup.
Buffled about the position he was placed in, he said, “I would never understand the mentality of those who think against a human to fail, and some humans are doing this, I would never understand it.”
The previous Black Stars player said he was not scared of the assault launched against him, as a result of the experience he had garnered at his club side, as well as the national team.
“I don’t fear any of your critics, I’m so long in the game and I’m used to this. For me, it is not a problem, I don’t fear anything, just God,” he stressed.
He said he would have appreciated Ghanaians to scrutinize his tactical decisions whenever the team emerges on top in their matches to even out the criticisms.
“It’s easy when we lose, the first question is why did you do this and that, but when we win no questions come against me,” he expressed.
Talking about the friendly game against Switzerland, the 47-year-old expressed that the same pundits would have inquired into why his top players were reserved on the bench, should Black Stars have lost that match.
He encouraged the media to utilize their outlet to support players and coaches, instead of using their medium to advance provocative endeavors.
Coach Addo after stepping down as lead coach of the Ghana Black Stars, is now available to channel his focus on his club team, Dortmund, as a mentor coach.
Ghana was unable to cross their group into the round of 16 stage in the continuous FIFA World Cup, after they were beaten by 2 goals to nil in their final group match against Uruguay.
